Brenda’s ‘Voice’

Brenda habitually wrote very long letters, always spoke at length in person as well as at length on the telephone. I knew her voice well. Here’s the briefest email she ever sent. Her humour shines through. As does our friendship.

From Mugo to Brenda Birchenough
Yes, I looked one more time for that piece of paper and found it thank goodness. I will stay with Jill on Tuesday night though thanks for being willing to have me stay. Now have a safe journey up to Throssel. I do concern myself about you on the road, safety and all of that. Know you are valuable Sangha Treasure, look after yourself and please do not take risks. Steady as she goes. I am taking my own advice too. Sound like a fussing friend? Yes! In gassho, Mugo
